tv   The O Reilly Factor  FOX News  October 28, 2013 8:00pm-9:01pm PDT

8:00 pm
meant a lot to us. thank you for being with us. start each and every morning 5:00 to 9:00, fox and friends here on fox news channel. we'll see you back here tomorrow night. see you later. the o'reilly factor is on. >> i don't know. >> i don't know. >> i'm not sure. >> i don't know. >> frankly it's not something i have followed closely i didn't even know. >> he indicated that he was not aware. >> certainly i was not. >> front page headline in the "wall street journal" president obama did not know about the nsa spying on our allies. also, last night on "60 minutes" mass confusion in libya was documented. tonight the factor will analyze both stories with brit hume. >> i think things have gotten so bad inside iraq from the standpoint the iraqi people my belief is we will in fact be greeted as liberators. >> former vice president dick cheney makes his first appearance in the no spin zone. we will talk to him about iraq, afghanistan, and how
8:01 pm
he came back from near death. >> pinhead or patriot? >> i like him. >> you like him. >> i like him. >> you don't know who the vice president of the united states is. >> no. but i know the president though. >> you should be proud. >> also up ahead watters world pinhead and patriots. >> that's a very seductive look. >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. thanks for watching us tonight. i don't want to know. that is the subject of this eveningens talking points memo. as we reported last week there are at least half a dozen major controversies inside the obama administration that the president apparently didn't know anything about. today in the "wall street journal" front page headline says obama unaware as u.s. spied on world leaders. and i i believe that's true. while some americans think about mr. obama knew about
8:02 pm
fast and furious, irs, benghazi, libya, and the nasa spying while they were in -- nsa spying while they were in development. the president does not manage in a microway. he delegates often to incompetent people. most vivid example is the enormous screw up in obama care. that's the president's signature issue and he was apparently totally unaware that the roll out was broken. now, i could be wrong. i could be wrong about this. barack obama may have micromanaged all that stuff i mentioned. it's possible, but i believeimp. last night on "60 minutes," the horror of four americans being murdered in benghazi, libya are was portrayed. lt. colonel andy wood said he warned the obama administration al qaeda was hunting the american ambassador. >> tried to assassinate the british ambassador. wood says to him, it came as no surprise because al qaeda using a familiar tactic, had
8:03 pm
stated their intent in an online posting, saying they would attack the red cross, the british, and then the americans in benghazi. >> and you watched. >> as they did each one of those. >> and the british mission and the only ones left. >> were us. they made good on two out of the three promises. it was a matter of time until they captured the third one. >> and washington was aware of that? >> they knew we monitored it. we included that in our reports to it both state department and dod. >> the problem with colonel woods' assertion is that we don't know exactly who he warned? was it secretary of state clinton? secretary of defense panetta? both deny knowing of specific threats. and, of course, president obama says he did not knowed extent of the danger either. after the intent was underway the administration did not take action. >> you did had this conversation with the
8:04 pm
defense. you asked him what military assets were on their way and he says? >> effectively they are not. >> and i for a moment i just felt loss i didn't. i couldn't believe the answer. i said you have got to tell those guys there may not be any help coming. >> and there wasn't any help coming. now the defense attache in libya was lt. colonel keith phillips who says there was a fuel problem in getting air power to libya. but with all the warning, shouldn't the u.s. military have been on alert in that region? of course. of course they have you had been. so, here is the overall situation. you have a president, who apparently is disengaged from day-to-day activities in his own government. and one after another, you have major problems. before obama care, many americans were apathetic to
8:05 pm
that but now because healthcare effects them directly, the situation is changing. it's no longer satisfactory for mr. obama to say is he going to get to the bottom of things because, number one, he never does. and, number two, there just too many screw ups. the administration had three and a half years to roll out the affordable healthcare law. and it spent close to a billion taxpayer dollars preparing for the rollout. yet, there is mass chaos. finally, throughout history, people have gotten the government they deserve. i'm not going to say anything more. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction. joining us from reaction brit hume who has covered 8 presidents in his career. have you ever seen another president govern the way mr. obama is governing? >> not exactly, bill. all the presidents that i have witnessed have used a similar management style in the sense that they use a similar management
8:06 pm
structure. you know, staff structure at the white house. the cabinet agencies. the omb to supervise spending and so on. but they have governorred in very different ways. and there have been instances, the most celebrated being ronald reagan's professed unawareness of what was going on with iran contra in which presidents were said not to know about something that blew up. i have not seen this number associated with any of the presidents that i have observed. >> okay. knowing president obama is he just not interested? he is bored with it. is it deniability that he doesn't want to know what his attorney general is doing? that has alowed all of these things to happen without his knowledge? >> he is not a micromanager. jimmy carter was famously observant of who was using
8:07 pm
the white house tennis court when he was president. which was an example of micromanagement that is sort of in the extreme. i would say that president obama is probably at the other end of the spectrum on that and he relies upon the people under him to run things properly and to furnish information to him that is deemed necessary the question for somebody like that always is you have got the right people? kathleen sebelius and her department and agencies have let him down on the obama carrollout and so forth which would seem to be a real problem for him. also the questions about what he knew and when about things like benghazi. we still don't know what he did that night, precisely what he did that night. >> we still don't know what the meeting is the day before and that's the most recent news. they had a meeting in the white house and he attended it the day before this meeting came up. we don't know anything about the meeting and the white house won't tell us. >> no, the white house is not forth coming about
8:08 pm
information on this. it's difficult to assess it it's tempting to think if the president was doing something truly glorious about this they would tell us about it and he must not have been because they won't. you can't know. >> in historical he evaluations of presidents, its performance that counts. i'm trying not the to be unfair. right now i see barack obama in major trouble on the history front. forget about the obama care debacle which i think is going to get worse. i could be wrong on that. it's speculation. just where we stand right now five years into his administration, he has got to be in the bottom 10 because the economy hasn't improved and all of the problems -- problem after problem after problem. very few solutions coming forth. is that too hash harsh. >> he has not accomplished things he was elected to do.
8:09 pm
the principle restore robust economy when it was in deep trouble. fair to say it hasn't got be better. it's gotten better to some extent. >> not median wages. >> bill, i don't want to argument particulars with you. i'm is saying on some accounts it's gotten better and many accounts it has not. many are not including him. that is one that hasn't worked out very well. the healthcare rollout could still succeed. there are structural issues whole thing could collapse. that's his principle domestic achievement. >> we'll know next year. >> look at the withdrawal from iraq. that situation over in iraq, which was one where the surge of troops that president bush 43 had instituted had turned things around. >> that maybe falling apart. >> dick cheney coming up in a couple of anyone's answered will talk about that i want to make sure everybody standz my politic must test on the economy is how much workers are making. those salaries have gone
8:10 pm
down five years that's how i judge it. >> you bet. >> former vice president dick cheney on iraq, afghanistan, and cheating death. big interview moments away. [ male announcer ] raise your hand if you've got savings whiplash.

8:14 pm
to 20,000. cost of the war about three quarters of a trillion dollars so far. it is expected most u.s. forces will be out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. here now one of the chief architects of the iraq and afghanistan campaigns. dick cheney. let's take iraq first. >> bill. >> >> big trouble there now. >> yes there is, unfortunately. i'm very concerned about what i see it would appear the level of violence has escalated significantly. the surge that the president bush put in place in 2007 and 2008 was very successful renewing the level of violence, getting the sunnies to buy in in the reawakening if you will in al anbar province. there was never the follow-on agreement negotiated which was always the i object tent and which we thought we had set up at the end but the obama administration didn't pursue it. >> and they didn't pursue it because the iraq authorities wouldn't indemnify americans. they wouldn't give them -- they wanted to try themselves if any
8:15 pm
misbehavior or accusations that's where it fell apart. >> we have that debate in every country. we have them all over the world it was a question of sovereignty. we always insist of maintaining jurisdiction of our people. >> absolutely as we should. >> as we should and that's what we did in this case. you have got to stick with persistence. they didn't stick with it they walked away from it. >> you feel they could have gotten a deal about the initem if indemnification. it doesn't combat force but it's there for training and provide capability they don't have. logistics, intelligence. medical. >> you think the obama administration wanted out of there and the hell with it. >> exactly and we are paying the price now. the iraqis are paying the price now. >> what do we get out of iraq now. as americans we are all in this together. it's easy toinger point. they finger pointed you and bush and i don't want to do that he we spent a trillion dollars on this with a lot of pain and suffering on the american military. what do we get out of it?
8:16 pm
beside saddam being out of there? >> but remember what we were faced with in the imimmediate aftermath of 9/11. we had a lot of evidence. they indicate al qaeda was trying to get their hands on weapons of mass destruction. we had in saddam hussein a guy who had produced and use the weapons of mass destruction. >> i supported -- you know, i don't blame you, you, vice president cheney or president bush for doing what you can i mean, i'm not monday morning quarterbacking. but, right now, what do we get of iraq for all of that blood and treasure? what do we get out of it? >> what we gain and my concern was then and is today biggest threat we face is the possibility of terrorist groups like al qaeda equipped with weapons of mass destruction. nukes bugs or gas. that was after 9/11 and when we took down saddam hussein we eliminated iraq. >> but they are back. >> that's right. but they wouldn't be if they followed the policies that we laid out for them when we left he.
8:17 pm
let me finish. >> sure. >> what we got out of it took down saddam hussein as a major source. five days africa geography said he would surrender his weapons materials. he had century fiewdges and uranium stock. after that we took down his major supplier father of the pakistan. black market. we put him out of business. got rid of three major sources of. >> of weapons of mass destruction. >> very important. >> but right now iraq looks to me and this is the headline of the "the washington post" today nearly two years after the u.s. troop withdrawal. iraq is in the midst of a deepening security crisis as al qaeda relentless campaign of attacks. so while you are correct in the bigger picture, i don't know if the suffering and blood was worth it? >> well, we have got a major problem in that part of the world, it's just not iraq. also danger in afghanistan. >> let's get to afghanistan. >> and then iran. the withdrawal of the united states from that part of the
8:18 pm
world has been significantly diminished our capacity. >> all right. in afghanistan, you have a corrupt leader karzai. would you aseed -- accede that. >> corrupt in the eye of the beholder. no, in afghanistan nearly everybody has got. >> in your eye karzai corrupt? >> in my eye karzai was a guy who was there when we needed him. >> all right. but is he corrupt. i understand you have go to deal with bad guys all the time. >> i don't want to pass judgment and say he is corrupt. >> you are not going to come after me if say that will you. >> no. i will give you as pavment. >> now, it looks to me and correct me if i am wrong, that once the united states pulls most of our people out and we may pull them all out like we did in iraq because karzai is not cooperating on a the love different fronts, taliban with al qaeda's help is going to come in and make that country a press. >> issue of the economists
8:19 pm
two or three weeks agnew feyes failure. molly my jeer all the way across are now saith havens ngs places where fellow treaferls did grind safe harbor. training facilities and so forth. that be we ever faced in the past. the u.s. withdraw from that part of the world is significantly diminished our capacity. whether we are trying to deal with the situation in syria or iran they don't pay attention anymore. >> again, you have a policy difference with the obama administration. you wouldn't withdraw. you would say. but, by saying, we are paying so much money and it's suffering on military people so high. again, we are all americans and all in this together. it looks to me like the taliban is going to reconstitute and cause so much trouble in afghanistan it's going to become a chaotic mess. >> but the last time the
8:20 pm
taliban took control in afghanistan. >> i think they are going to do that again. >> in addition to hijackers who came in here with airline tickets and box cutter. >> do that again? sit back and worry about it. >> i'm asking you if we are withdrawing do it again as it seems like think they will. >> very real danger of that. >> get out of it. >> what do you get out of it, if you withdraw and let that happen again, bill, we don't have the choice anymore, if we ever did, since certainly since 9/11 crawling back behind our orgses and saying what goes over there doesn't matter to us. matters a hell of a lot if there is a lot of terrorist bases, there are more areas where they can be based than ever before. if major proliferation problems nuclear weapons. >> that puts the strain on our u.s. military is unbelievable and on our treasury 17 trillion in debt. >>er that.
8:21 pm
if we had a presence over there, if we had been able to continue the policies that we put in place. if we had been able to work to keep the governments established governments that are stable, willing to thin their own sovereign turf we would be better off than we are now. now we are in a position where our adversaries no longer fear us. >> final question real quick you are not optimistic afghanistan will be able to fint there observe problems. >> i don't think they will unless and pakistan is next door. where did we lawnch from to get usama bin laden from afghanistan. where did we base ourselves. >> you got the dreans now that maybe only to based in afghanistan. >> talk about his stunning recovery from. up in bost [ male announcer ] this is not just a laptop.

>> at this pointing with former vice president dick cheney author the new book "heart american medical odyssey." most people don't have the intense heart issues you have had. what are they going to take from this book. >> what we tried to do is talk about that story over the last 35 or 40 years when developments in the medical world have riewtioned -- reduced the incidence of heart disease from 40% to 50%. most of the things hadn't been invented when i had had that first heart attack in 1978. >> you had five heart attacks. >> one episode. aneurysms in my knees. implants in my heart. defib. >> cleveland clinic invited me to come as a patient and i was the guy who had
8:26 pm
virtually everything done to him as a heart patient. >> when these things happened to you, were you afraid? >> the first time around, first heart attack i was. in terms of, you know, you wake up, you are 37 years old and you are in the hospital and you have had a heart attack. that's sharp. it's disturbing, if you will. over time you learn to live with it the book in part is about this. it's hopeful. you can have coronary heart disease, heart disease and lead a relatively normal life. i certainly did. >> when you got the heart transplant, were you fearful when you went in for that operation? that's -- >> -- no, i was hopeful. i was optimistic. the hard part was the operation before that. >> do you fear death? >> do i fear death? i didn't feel that way when i faced it when i got to the point where i was near death. i guess talk about in the the book when i went into end stage heart failure. my heart is so weak it's no longer providing blood
8:27 pm
supply to kidney, liver and so forth. i had hours to go. i was a piece. >> are you a believer? >> i am. >> so you were at peace and you -- did you put your hands in god or how did you look at that? >> it was a matter that i had thought for a long time that eventually the technology and my time would run out. and after long and productive life i had reached the end of my days. >> and you accepted that? >> and i accepted that. >> okay. so that is a big component, i believe, of healing when you are not -- your mind isn't fighting your body, whatever happens you are okay with it. >> um-huh. >> do you get into that at all in the book? >> i describe going through that process. i described talking to my family about the fact about what i wanted to have done. in terms of final arrange manies. >> the heart transplant person who donated it. do you want to say who that person is? >> i don't know. >> oh, you don't know he? >> no. >> interestingly enough. >> they don't tell you. there is a process can you
8:28 pm
go through it's a third party. and if both the donor's family and recipient want to make a connection, there is a way to do that. >> um-huh. >> but they don't encourage upfront. when i came out from under the anesthetic i was joyous. the family had been through a tragedy lost somebody. the match at that point is radically different. i have never done anything other than praise the donor every chance i get and encourage people to be donors but i don't know details about my donor. >> i followed you for many years and you look very good in person. i'm talking to the vice president is he two inches away from me. you look robust. you look healthy. and i believe it is a miracle that these kinds of things can happen when you look 100 years ago and you are in the ground. it's not even close. >> do you believe that you are here for a purpose? do you believe that all of these things that you have been through leads somewhere? >> i can't say that, bill.
8:29 pm
i am grateful for the prayers offered by a lot of people for my family that stood by me through some very tough and difficult days for a donor, for the wonders of modern american healthcare. but i can't say without t. would be an ego trip for me to say i'm here for pawrps. god means for me to do something. i can't say that. >> are you done as far as public service is concerned? >> i believe so. >> because president bush told me that he doesn't want to get involved anymore or speak out even. >> yeah. >> you do speak out? >> i do. i have strock feelings and i think it's helpful and useful for me and it makes me feel better occasionally to say what i think is going on. >> you and the president were demonized by the national media pretty intensely would you say? >> pretty intensely. i didn't expect anything else. >> do you think that the republican party will eventually embrace you and bring you back as somebody who is -- was right or point to you?
8:30 pm
are you looking for that kind of redeposition? >> no, i'm not. i run into people all the time who say thank you. i suppose my critics aren't the ones who come up and shake my my hand and thank thank me for my service. i'm thankful for the community to serve. i enjoyed it. i would do it again in a minute. >> is the -- corrupt in your opinion. >> seriously misguided. there are elements throughout like fox, like your show that i think are seriously objective and reflective of what i think a lot of americans believe. i do find that the mainstream media oftentimes is what i would consider off base or has a bias. >> is there a reason? >> i don't know that there is a reason. some kind of conspiracy. i don't believe that. necessarily. i think there are though large parts of our society, including to some extent our educational system, our colleges and universities, the mainstream media, hollywood, that do in fact have a significant bias against the left. they have accumulated a lot of influence.
8:31 pm
>> we are a changing country? >> we he are. >> mr. vice president pleasure to have you in here and glad to have you back. >> i will. >> you know more americans are receiving fell fair than actually working? karl rove with more on that. who is a pinhead and who is a patriot? i'm involved in this tonight which could be bad news for if you've got copd like me, hey breathing's hard. know the feeling? copd includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. spiriva is a once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that helps open my obstructed airways for a full 24 hours. spiriva helps me breathe easier. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help

reaction with dick cheney. joining us juan williams and mary katharineham. both fox news analyst. juan, what say you? >> first of all i thought you said five-day forecasty. he had his heart beating and was five-day forecasty. had you your heart weeght with him. what do we get out of it? he can't answer you. he dodged and played games with that one and then he blames obama. >> he says we were able to neutralize bad dictators like qaddafi and khan and prevented a wholesale weapons of mass destruction. >> what did you say bill o'reilly? you said look things are falling apart as we see in iraq. threats still exist in the mountains of pakistan you say what did we get out of it? he couldn't answer you except point finger at obama and say karzai is corrupt. come on you know karzai is corrupt. >> i think when it comes to iraq. i think it's very fair to look at the situation and go look, we pulled out for what
8:36 pm
looked like frankly political reasons because they did not fry hard on the agreement before leaving there. >> at a point didn't try to keep a residual force in iraq. >> had you gotten to ain't to where the piece was largely won finally and then you abandon the situation which i think makes things more dangerous and does make a lot of that fighting in vain. >> obviously it's a matter of speculation. go ahead. >> well, is he not the greatest negotiator. on afghanistan, i think that's a harder nut to crack. obama although said it was the correct war. one thing that's interesting is what we learned from those wars and the fact that the public is quite war weary is that you need to know what you need to do to win the piece. and take it the the public and make the sale. what we have found is owe boom that is not willing to do that. >> unending war. you heard the vice president say that itner ends. >> but now we are fighting it but a guy who is fighting it has no vision. >> okay, that may be true.
8:37 pm
>> but we're still on the ground fights it, it's bizarre. >> i don't know if it's going to be an easy sell to the american public like we have to fight add infinitum, latin means forever. they are always going to find a place to cause trouble. the vice president is wig to do that? >> >> yeah. the american people have a cost benefit analysis on that and they are not sure they are willing to do that by having a stable iraq would have been helpful and i think that we hurt our chances there. but the president is sort of -- you are getting the worst of both worlds here gung ho in going into libya and try to go into syria. not having the same vision or plan for winning those places. >> i wonder, juan, if dick cheney is going to make a come back in the republican party. i wonder if his strength, like it or not, the guy is a strong guy he is like okay this is it appeared we are going to do it it exact opposite what's going on in the obama administration. i wonder if he will make a come back or not.

test your level of control at, then talk to your doctor. there may be more you could do for your asthma. thanks for staying with us, i'm bill o'reilly in the factor follow up segment tonight. is america becoming a welfare state in the answer is yes. according to data released by the census bureau in the fourth quarter of the year 200011 the latest stats available. nearly 10% of -- quarter% of the.
